A very average hotel with good friendly service. The restaurant is OK and the food is fine. The pricing in this hotel is much more affordable that any other hotel in the city. There are definitely more "Up Market" hotels in Nairobi but does not justify the difference in price. What you get here is really good value for money.

I stayed at the Sarova Panafric recently. While this is an older hotel, the room was just perfect for my needs. I liked the way the hotel group goes to great pains to ensure all the creature comforts are available to their guests. The breakfast is amazing and very fresh and tasty. Superb service from all the staff in the... More

Just finished up 4 nights at the Panafric. My wife was sick and we traveled from another country to go to the hospital for several days in a row. 15 min walk/5 min cab ride. Room was well appointed, albeit tight on space. The low point was that the bed and pillows are ridiculously firm. On the plus side, all... More

But what stuck for me was the pleasant people who served and helped while I was staying there, it is true what they say you may... More

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, room was large and bed was comfortable. Everything was spotlessly clean. We loved it here and would be back in a heart beat, brilliant views of the city through the huge windows. Really well placed a 5 minute walk into the heart of Nairobi and the staff were always happy to give you directions... More
